YouTube has some videos you really should check out. A 7-month old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time after being having hearing aids fitted. You might find yourself crying tears of joy when you see the smile on his face.
Videos like this one are countless online. You can share that wonderful moment with the child, the parents, and their physicians.
The baby doesn’t always like the idea of getting hearing aids put in initially. When the doctor tries to fit the hearing aids in the baby’s ears, they resist and fight. Sometimes, before they smile with joy, they cry. A range of emotions overtakes them. They don’t know what to expect. But ultimately, with renewed hearing, the world immediately opens up for them.
This happiness that they’re feeling can be a reality for anyone.
Does the idea of using hearing aids make you anxious? You’re not by yourself. People of every age can be a little anxious about this.
People of all ages can have the joy and happiness that hearing aids bring.
The Sound of Music
You may not even recognize the problem. It developed so gradually. You quit listening to music. It just didn’t seem as pleasant anymore. Sometimes, it was even grating. It got even worse when you cranked up the volume.
Hearing impairment doesn’t just impact the volume you can hear. Some frequencies of sound are lost while others are not effected.
Music is, as every musician knows, a beautiful blend of sound frequencies that blend together to create the sound that we hear as…., well, music. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
But wait, now you put in your new hearing aids. Suddenly you can hear those once silent tones. Music again comes alive. It becomes a fantastic pleasure in your life that you’d lost.
A Child’s Laughter
Do you recall the sound of a child’s laughter? If you’ve been unwilling to wear your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be.
Rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren by recovering your hearing.
Where Did All The Birds go?
Remember all those birds in your yard? There are hundreds if you walk in the park. While some of their chirps are more pleasant than others, it’s something you may not appreciate until they’re gone.
Except there not gone. You just don’t hear these joyful melodies that so enhance your life.
But when you use your hearing aids those delightful sounds of nature return to enhance your life once again.
Relationships can be substantially strained by untreated hearing loss. It can cause a tremendous amount of frustration. There’s misunderstanding causing more arguments. It can even cause someone with hearing loss to seclude themselves, so they don’t feel as if they are a burden.
They often feel alone and disconnected from other people’s discussions causing them to refrain from going out to dinner or other social activities.
Are hobbies you once enjoyed less enjoyable now so you’ve given them up?
The basic act of getting your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with people you love, siblings, children, and friends.
Get accustomed to talking to each other again. Talk for hours. Return to spending time with your loved ones and engaging in activities you love.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
Assurance That You’re Safe in Your Home
Do you feel stressed about what you can’t hear? If a family member was hurt and yelling for help in a different, would you be able to hear them? A doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm…could you hear them? Perhaps you would miss an essential phone call because you couldn’t hear it ring.
What about oncoming traffic when you walk around the neighborhood, or a bicycle bell, or a pedestrian signal? Are you certain that you can hear these essential signals?
There are places where we should feel totally safe but because of these “what ifs” we don’t.
But you can feel more relaxed and enjoy life more when you wear your hearing aids. You’ll have peace of mind.
